Let us not forget that the suffering involved in halal slaughter is part of its meaning. Traditionally, and with halal slaughter today, the slow death of the sacrificed animal was and is an essential part of the ritual. So don't let Muslims tell you otherwise. If it were an instant death, it wouldn't be halal slaughter. Thus the animal has to be seen to suffer, even if only for a minute or so. That's what slaugher is. That's what sacrifice is.
Make no mistake. Halal slaughter is just the beginning of the Islamification of the UK. Single-sex swimming pools, all-Muslim schools, sharia courts, Muslim ghettoes, hands-off Muslim policies for the police, the allowing of the burka, non-taxed Islamic charities, public praying, prayer rooms in virtually all institutions and buildings, etc. are all just the beginning of the Islamification of our humanist, secularist and Christian culture.
It is not exactly that sharia law is creeping into our country because the EDL, for one, knows exactly what is happening. However, the slippery slope of increased sharia-isation, the one by one accommodations to Islam, is how the Islamists and Muslims are planning things. They will not ask for death for apostasy or public stoning yet because that will quite simply backfire and damage the Islamic cause. Thus, slowly does it.
